What exactly is the American Redoubt? See https://www.survivalblog.com/redoubt.html for more details from James Wesley Rawles, whose description of our Redoubt many of us wholeheartedly support.

We are “Prepared Individuals Living in Uncertain Times” is the motto of James Wesley Rawles SurvivalBlog.com.

We Vote-with-our-Feet and have prepared “For when times get tough, or even if they don't” - the motto of Jack Spirko's SurvivalPodcast (www.thesurvivalpodcast.com)

One could say that the American Redoubt was “founded” when Montana became a State of these United States of America on November 8, 1889, just 1 year before Idaho and Wyoming.

For those who are more attached to the East Coast and can't easily migrate to the American Redoubt in the Intermountain-West, we recommend the blog of the inspirational M.D. Creekmore who posted Joel M. Skousen, Author, Strategic Relocation North American Guide to Safe Places, on the Tennessee Cumberland Plateau solution to the “The East Coast Retreat Dilemma”: http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/redoubt-of-the-east http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/news-eastern-redoubt-tennessee-cumberland-plateau/

“As a relocation specialist and designer, I found safe retreat locations and helped clients develop high security homes in every state of the union and you can too. The concept that anyone caught East of the Mississippi River is doomed is only partially valid and highly exaggerated. You can achieve a significantly higher level of safety going beyond the Appalachians to the high plateau regions of Tennessee and Kentucky. This massive and relatively unpopulated area is called the Cumberland Plateau—most of which falls within the state of Tennessee.” Joel M. Skousen (https://joelskousen.com/strategic.html) is a relocation specialist and author of “Strategic Relocation North American Guide to Safe Places.” https://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/redoubt-east-aka-cumberland-plateau-ot-tennessee/

Permaculture

See Permaculture terms.

Permaculture is a scientific and ethical system of sustainable agriculture based on traditional principles of agriculture used successfully and commonly around the world before the advent of modern industrial “factory farm” methods of farming such as chemical fertilizers, genetically modified organism seeds from Monsanto designed to resist massive amounts of toxic insecticides-pesticides-herbicides.

Introduction to the term "Permaculture"

The word “Permaculture”, its theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were synthesized-developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s and disseminated by his student Geoff Lawton.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks, techniques and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types, yet it is most commonly applied to agricultural food production systems, although many types of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Permaculture's Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”

While there are numerous practices and concepts, these are some of the main ones:

Appeal to Homesteaders, Preppers and Survivalists

Permaculture has been adopted by many in the conservative-libertarian Homesteader, Survivalist-Preparedness movements according to James Wesley Rawles, Paul Wheaton, Jack Spirko, and Backwoods Home Magazine. Permaculture results in long term productive ecosystems that require minimal maintenance and little to no inputs once well established. Permaculture also can help create an abundance of food on arid, infertile, rocky or marginal land often considered not viable for agricultural use. (See the YouTube video “Greening of the Desert”<ref>Greening the Desert by Geoff Lawton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reCemnJmkzI found on https://www.youtube.com/user/Permasolutions/videos Accessed December 5, 2014. Also see https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Greening+of+the+Desert+youtube, http://www.permies.com/t/1784/desert/Greening-Desert)</ref>)

Permaculture includes everything from water catchment, alternative energy systems, alternative building, livestock management to food forestry and much more. Unlike the entitlement mentality of Liberal values-Public school values-Teacup Generation, permaculture is a system that results in a highly self sufficient Small town values lifestyle in all times not just during a crisis. Hence it has gained broad acceptance by conservative-thinking homesteaders, survivalists, and preppers.

Permaculture Tenets similar to Survialism Tenets

As show below, permaculture shares some important major tenets with those of “modern survivalism”. While most “permaculurists” subscribe to Libertarian values, not all permaculturists practice the Conservative values, Traditional values, American values, Small town values and Family values that are accepted by the vast majority of survivalists according to well-known prepper authors-bloggers-podcaster-“authorities” such as Jack Spirko and New York Times best-selling author James Wesley Rawles of the American Redoubt vote with your feet conservative political migration movement, the “grand-daddy of the survivalist movement” Mel Tappan, and also many others including Ragnar Benson, Boston T. Party (Kenneth Royce of Free State Wyoming), Chuck Baldwin, Joel Skousen, Cleon Skousen, Alex Jones, Dave Duffy of Backwoods Home Magazine, M.D. Creekmore, et al.

Growing your own food

Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want “organicfruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on “the system”. If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property. See Permaculture for more specific articles.

  • Permaculture implies some land-soil to grow food and medicines (herbs), thus owning land is true wealth. Individuals should strive to own land in the rural country where taxes are low and big government restrictions are limited. Even if you live in the city finding, buying and improving land within 3-5 hours of your primary residence makes a lot of sense. If you can use it to get out of the city at some point so much the better.

  • In addition to food, water and other common preparedness stores (“preps”) use common sense methods of hedging against “disaster” due to drought, weather events, crop failure, famine, etc. The types of protection offered by Permaculture techniques can make your life a lot less miserable when something goes wrong. Permaculturists make this part of their planning and permaculture design.

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

Permaculture

See Permaculture terms.

Permaculture is a scientific and ethical system of sustainable agriculture based on traditional principles of agriculture used successfully and commonly around the world before the advent of modern industrial “factory farm” methods of farming such as chemical fertilizers, genetically modified organism seeds from Monsanto designed to resist massive amounts of toxic insecticides-pesticides-herbicides.

Introduction to the term "Permaculture"

The word “Permaculture”, its theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were synthesized-developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s and disseminated by his student Geoff Lawton.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks, techniques and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types, yet it is most commonly applied to agricultural food production systems, although many types of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Permaculture's Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”

While there are numerous practices and concepts, these are some of the main ones:

Appeal to Homesteaders, Preppers and Survivalists

Permaculture has been adopted by many in the conservative-libertarian Homesteader, Survivalist-Preparedness movements according to James Wesley Rawles, Paul Wheaton, Jack Spirko, and Backwoods Home Magazine. Permaculture results in long term productive ecosystems that require minimal maintenance and little to no inputs once well established. Permaculture also can help create an abundance of food on arid, infertile, rocky or marginal land often considered not viable for agricultural use. (See the YouTube video “Greening of the Desert”<ref>Greening the Desert by Geoff Lawton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reCemnJmkzI found on https://www.youtube.com/user/Permasolutions/videos Accessed December 5, 2014. Also see https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Greening+of+the+Desert+youtube, http://www.permies.com/t/1784/desert/Greening-Desert)</ref>)

Permaculture includes everything from water catchment, alternative energy systems, alternative building, livestock management to food forestry and much more. Unlike the entitlement mentality of Liberal values-Public school values-Teacup Generation, permaculture is a system that results in a highly self sufficient Small town values lifestyle in all times not just during a crisis. Hence it has gained broad acceptance by conservative-thinking homesteaders, survivalists, and preppers.

Permaculture Tenets similar to Survialism Tenets

As show below, permaculture shares some important major tenets with those of “modern survivalism”. While most “permaculurists” subscribe to Libertarian values, not all permaculturists practice the Conservative values, Traditional values, American values, Small town values and Family values that are accepted by the vast majority of survivalists according to well-known prepper authors-bloggers-podcaster-“authorities” such as Jack Spirko and New York Times best-selling author James Wesley Rawles of the American Redoubt vote with your feet conservative political migration movement, the “grand-daddy of the survivalist movement” Mel Tappan, and also many others including Ragnar Benson, Boston T. Party (Kenneth Royce of Free State Wyoming), Chuck Baldwin, Joel Skousen, Cleon Skousen, Alex Jones, Dave Duffy of Backwoods Home Magazine, M.D. Creekmore, et al.

Growing your own food

Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want “organicfruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on “the system”. If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property. See Permaculture for more specific articles.

Owning land is true wealth

<!– Do NOT change the title “Owning land is true wealth” since it is a bookmark linked to by articles Owning land is true wealth and many others –>

  • Permaculture implies some land-soil to grow food and medicines (herbs), thus owning land is true wealth. Individuals should strive to own land in the rural country where taxes are low and big government restrictions are limited. Even if you live in the city finding, buying and improving land within 3-5 hours of your primary residence makes a lot of sense. If you can use it to get out of the city at some point so much the better.

Financial security

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

Permaculture

See Permaculture terms.

Permaculture is a scientific and ethical system of sustainable agriculture based on traditional principles of agriculture used successfully and commonly around the world before the advent of modern industrial “factory farm” methods of farming such as chemical fertilizers, genetically modified organism seeds from Monsanto designed to resist massive amounts of toxic insecticides-pesticides-herbicides.

Introduction to the term "Permaculture"

The word “Permaculture”, its theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were synthesized-developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s and disseminated by his student Geoff Lawton.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks, techniques and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types, yet it is most commonly applied to agricultural food production systems, although many types of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Permaculture's Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”

While there are numerous practices and concepts, these are some of the main ones:

Appeal to Homesteaders, Preppers and Survivalists

Permaculture has been adopted by many in the conservative-libertarian Homesteader, Survivalist-Preparedness movements according to James Wesley Rawles, Paul Wheaton, Jack Spirko, and Backwoods Home Magazine. Permaculture results in long term productive ecosystems that require minimal maintenance and little to no inputs once well established. Permaculture also can help create an abundance of food on arid, infertile, rocky or marginal land often considered not viable for agricultural use. (See the YouTube video “Greening of the Desert”<ref>Greening the Desert by Geoff Lawton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reCemnJmkzI found on https://www.youtube.com/user/Permasolutions/videos Accessed December 5, 2014. Also see https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Greening+of+the+Desert+youtube, http://www.permies.com/t/1784/desert/Greening-Desert)</ref>)

Permaculture includes everything from water catchment, alternative energy systems, alternative building, livestock management to food forestry and much more. Unlike the entitlement mentality of Liberal values-Public school values-Teacup Generation, permaculture is a system that results in a highly self sufficient Small town values lifestyle in all times not just during a crisis. Hence it has gained broad acceptance by conservative-thinking homesteaders, survivalists, and preppers.

Permaculture Tenets similar to Survialism Tenets

As show below, permaculture shares some important major tenets with those of “modern survivalism”. While most “permaculurists” subscribe to Libertarian values, not all permaculturists practice the Conservative values, Traditional values, American values, Small town values and Family values that are accepted by the vast majority of survivalists according to well-known prepper authors-bloggers-podcaster-“authorities” such as Jack Spirko and New York Times best-selling author James Wesley Rawles of the American Redoubt vote with your feet conservative political migration movement, the “grand-daddy of the survivalist movement” Mel Tappan, and also many others including Ragnar Benson, Boston T. Party (Kenneth Royce of Free State Wyoming), Chuck Baldwin, Joel Skousen, Cleon Skousen, Alex Jones, Dave Duffy of Backwoods Home Magazine, M.D. Creekmore, et al.

Growing your own food

Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want “organicfruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on “the system”. If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property. See Permaculture for more specific articles.

Permaculture includes everything from water catchment, alternative energy systems, alternative building, livestock management to food forestry and much more. Unlike the entitlement mentality of Liberal values-Public school values-Teacup Generation, permaculture is a system that results in a highly self sufficient Small town values lifestyle in all times not just during a crisis. Hence it has gained broad acceptance by conservative-thinking homesteaders, survivalists, and preppers.

Permaculture Tenets similar to Survialism Tenets

As show below, permaculture shares some important major tenets with those of “modern survivalism”. While most “permaculurists” subscribe to Libertarian values, not all permaculturists practice the Conservative values, Traditional values, American values, Small town values and Family values that are accepted by the vast majority of survivalists according to well-known prepper authors-bloggers-podcaster-“authorities” such as Jack Spirko and New York Times best-selling author James Wesley Rawles of the American Redoubt vote with your feet conservative political migration movement, the “grand-daddy of the survivalist movement” Mel Tappan, and also many others including Ragnar Benson, Boston T.

Growing your own food

Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want “organicfruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on “the system”. If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property. See Permaculture for more specific articles.

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

Permaculture

See Permaculture terms.

Permaculture is a scientific and ethical system of sustainable agriculture based on traditional principles of agriculture used successfully and commonly around the world before the advent of modern industrial “factory farm” methods of farming such as chemical fertilizers, genetically modified organism seeds from Monsanto designed to resist massive amounts of toxic insecticides-pesticides-herbicides.

Introduction to the term "Permaculture"

The word “Permaculture”, its theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were synthesized-developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s and disseminated by his student Geoff Lawton.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks, techniques and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types, yet it is most commonly applied to agricultural food production systems, although many types of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Permaculture's Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”

While there are numerous practices and concepts, these are some of the main ones:

Appeal to Homesteaders, Preppers and Survivalists

Permaculture has been adopted by many in the conservative-libertarian Homesteader, Survivalist-Preparedness movements according to James Wesley Rawles, Paul Wheaton, Jack Spirko, and Backwoods Home Magazine. Permaculture results in long term productive ecosystems that require minimal maintenance and little to no inputs once well established. Permaculture also can help create an abundance of food on arid, infertile, rocky or marginal land often considered not viable for agricultural use.

Permaculture is a scientific and ethical system of sustainable agriculture based on traditional principles of agriculture used successfully and commonly around the world before the advent of modern industrial “factory farm” methods of farming such as chemical fertilizers, genetically modified organism seeds from Monsanto designed to resist massive amounts of toxic insecticides-pesticides-herbicides.

Introduction to the term "Permaculture"

The word “Permaculture”, its theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were synthesized-developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s and disseminated by his student Geoff Lawton.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks, techniques and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types, yet it is most commonly applied to agricultural food production systems, although many types of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Permaculture's Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”

While there are numerous practices and concepts, these are some of the main ones:

Appeal to Homesteaders, Preppers and Survivalists

Permaculture has been adopted by many in the conservative-libertarian Homesteader, Survivalist-Preparedness movements according to James Wesley Rawles, Paul Wheaton, Jack Spirko, and Backwoods Home Magazine. Permaculture results in long term productive ecosystems that require minimal maintenance and little to no inputs once well established. Permaculture also can help create an abundance of food on arid, infertile, rocky or marginal land often considered not viable for agricultural use. (See the YouTube video “Greening of the Desert”<ref>Greening the Desert by Geoff Lawton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reCemnJmkzI found on https://www.youtube.com/user/Permasolutions/videos Accessed December 5, 2014. Also see https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Greening+of+the+Desert+youtube, http://www.permies.com/t/1784/desert/Greening-Desert)</ref>)

Permaculture includes everything from water catchment, alternative energy systems, alternative building, livestock management to food forestry and much more. Unlike the entitlement mentality of Liberal values-Public school values-Teacup Generation, permaculture is a system that results in a highly self sufficient Small town values lifestyle in all times not just during a crisis. Hence it has gained broad acceptance by conservative-thinking homesteaders, survivalists, and preppers.

Permaculture Tenets similar to Survialism Tenets

As show below, permaculture shares some important major tenets with those of “modern survivalism”. While most “permaculurists” subscribe to Libertarian values, not all permaculturists practice the Conservative values, Traditional values, American values, Small town values and Family values that are accepted by the vast majority of survivalists according to well-known prepper authors-bloggers-podcaster-“authorities” such as Jack Spirko and New York Times best-selling author James Wesley Rawles of the American Redoubt vote with your feet conservative political migration movement, the “grand-daddy of the survivalist movement” Mel Tappan, and also many others including Ragnar Benson, Boston T. Party (Kenneth Royce of Free State Wyoming), Chuck Baldwin, Joel Skousen, Cleon Skousen, Alex Jones, Dave Duffy of Backwoods Home Magazine, M.D. Creekmore, et al.

Growing your own food

Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want “organicfruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on “the system”. If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property. See Permaculture for more specific articles.

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

“All the world's problems can be solved in a garden.” - Geoff Lawton, Permaculturist

Permaculture is an ethics based design system. The word, theories, philosophies, ethics, patterns, and main ideas of permaculture were developed by Bill Mollison in Australia during the 1970s.

The word permaculture is a portmanteau that was originally created from the words “permanent agriculture”. It has now been expanded to include the more broad words of “permanent” and “culture”.

Permaculture is a series of frameworks and tools to analyze, design, and create systems of all types. It is most widely applied to agricultural systems, although any type of system can be established using the permaculture framework.

Ethics

[[Care for the earth]]

:Provision for all life systems to continue and multiply. This is the first principle, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

[[Care for the people]]

:Provision for people to access those resources necessary for their existence.

[[Return of surplus]]

:Reinvesting surpluses back into the system to provide for the first two ethics. This includes returning waste back into the system to recycle into usefulness. According to Jack Spirko on his The Survival Podcast, some liberals and hippie types who work with permaculture have a complete misunderstanding of return of surplus as income redistribution.

Common Practices and Concepts

Permaculture is not a discipline in itself but rather a design approach based on connecting different disciplines, strategies, and techniques. It, like nature, uses and melds the best features of whatever is available to it. Some people new to this approach think of permaculture as a set of techniques. There are certain methods that are used often because they illustrate permaculture principles beautifully, such as herb spirals and keyhole beds; there are few, if any, techniques that belong only to permaculture. Permaculturists employ techniques from a broad range of disciplines, but these tools are selected and applied according to how well they allow permaculture's principles to be applied, not because a particular method is “how we do it in permaculture.”
